I don't think I'm going to alter the original levels. Maybe one day I'll create new levels. Lots of things to figure out in the meantime. Plus lacking the motivation right now.

Not sure if I want to compete too, given the lack of time and the superb scores already there

Haha, give it a go, I’m sure you’re fast!

Finally managed 40 on medium.
Less alcohol and better joystick seemed to have helped

The trading screwed me over so hard. Nearly every time. But I lucked out on the last level, so phew. Good enough for now. Will try hard next.

Medium: 38

You should sell your lvl 2 engine after the first race.
The second race is much easier with the lvl 1 engine.

The second hard race is okay with 2 engines, I often end up first. It's horrible with 3 engines though, and you're too fast and jump in the void after a while unless you turn/slow down, which isn't easy ...

Tried to compete last night. Easy level got on my nerves, couldn't finish a single race in the first place, then botched the driving test interview... You'll be better off without me

I do races 2, 4, 6 with Engine 2. And the others with Engine 3. It works okay if the parts prices don't screw me. Keep losing money to the environment woman. Hate her! And the cop too.

Hard: 28

It's definitely doable with engine 2 but with engine 1 you can go full speed all the time. But most importantly, if you get a good price for your engine 2 after the first race, you instantly have more money for trading (you need plenty of homing missiles for race 6 and a few for race 4 don't hurt either).

I can get away with 0 fine with the cop, but the environment woman is way harder

Tried it. It is just as easy to win race 2 with engine 1. Means a nice cash boost. Sadly I've had a terrible run of luck though. Worst one was 3 mid air collisions on the last race that sent me the long way round and piles of cars stopping me from going back or even blowing myself up. Game is cruel.

hard levels 6 and 7 are just sooo unfair at times.

I've played this a lot in the past, but always with communication screens off. I tried following Lifeschool's guide to them... with very mixed results. My tactic for hard level six has always been to purchase at least 50+ normal missiles and simply camp at the start line facing backwards and fire them at every car that comes past. That's often enough to destroy every other car. Hard level seven is actually quite winnable, but it takes quite a lot of practice.

Easy: 40
Medium: 38
Hard: 30

Hard: 38 - I came third on the third track, which for me is the most random one

That's an evil and totally justified solution.

Agree that race 3 is unpredictable. All those gates and the train make a big difference to what can happen.

Race 5 is my favourite.

I love that we’re discussing super cars 2 tactics in 2021!

But hard level 6 is just a huge bug, no way the devs intended for the opponents to cheat like that. (Edit: I see they fixed it on that map in SC international)
Still hoping jotd or some other whdload dev could patch the spawn position after hitting the train.

Thanks for the game round everyone, it was fun!

Yes, I've always liked that one. Four is my least favourite because if the leader gets clear, you cannot catch him, and homing missiles just go round in circle, you've got no chance.

Medium: 39
Total: 117

Not a bad score for a few hours work.

A flurry of scores at the end there. Thanks for playing everyone.

The veteran racers stormed the podium. Well done to john4p for the victory, and fgh and jPV for taking joint second. A lot of big scores for a tough little game.

1st - john4p
2nd - fgh
2nd - jPV


Next up, a more relaxing sport.
